The nights are drawing in, which can only mean one thing, it’s time for Junction Arts to light up your weekends with community lantern-making workshops at Bolsover Assembly Hall.


It’s advised that people book in advance to secure their spot, with morning and afternoon sessions available.

Please have an idea of what you want to make when you arrive, there is no theme for the parade, your lantern can be anything! There will be artists on hand to help you create your masterpiece.

Suggested lantern donations: small lanterns: £5, medium lanterns: £10, large (pro) lanterns: £20.  Lights are sold separately.
